Steelseries 5Hv2 or 7H?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have bought the 5Hv2 last Christmas. Just this week I was in my daily instance in World of Warcraft when as I was taking them off the right ear phone snapped off. I tried to screw it back in but the sliding adjuster thing is loose, and the electrical tape keeping the copper wire inside is worn.

I also thought that the 5Hv2's quality was nice on my Xi-fi sound card and was extremely comfortable. I don't necessarily enjoy leather ear cushions, but will deal with them if necessary.

It's fixable, but the headset will still be loose so I am wondering, should I buy the 7H or 5Hv2, which is better based solely on comfort and build quality. I am afraid that the 7H might also break. Keep in mind when judging its comfort that I have glasses, so I might need something slightly more bearable then what someone would want without glasses.

Thanks in advance,
Eric

No budget. I want the 5hv2 or 7H for xmas because of noise cancelation and it has a good microphone.

don't say 'no budget' as I can make a $2000+ setup easily.

Both are yucky. Chinesekiwi should be able to hook you up with something nice. Stay clear of the HD555s.

I don't think you guys understand the point of this thread.

I'm choosing between 7H and 5Hv2. Both may be yucky to you, but to me they are just fine for their price. So, looking at build quality and comfort which is better?

We're also saying there are better choices for the price with our more informed knowledgeable opinions, both for gaming and music.
